My son has autism and normally takes up to 3/4 hours to go to sleep. 5 min tonight, and he was out like a light. A thanks can’t cover how happy and thankful I am tonight.
It’s not uncommon for children with autism to become overstimulated. Often light, sound and touch can drastically affect their mood, as can changes in routine and unexpected events. As autistic children have difficulty understanding or communicating their feelings, a sudden shift in sensory perception or experience may result in the child becoming fearful or frustrated.
